Keynote Speech:Big Data Analytics: Beyond Big data and AI
Abstract: The artificial intelligence in big data era is based on the big data analytics to discover usable knowledge from big data. However, big data analytics for modern AI go beyond traditional AI and big data processing. New requirements of scalability, automation and usability are brought by the features of big data and new AI tasks. Some specific techniques are in demand to meet these requirements. This talk will introduce the challenges for these challenges and the corresponding solutions to address these challenges.
